Desert Cat

by The Walking Kiwi - Jam Entry

Basically a tower defense game, with zombies, blocks and a cat... for some reason.
We understand that there may be bugs, so feel free to point out any!
Have fun!

Edit: Well, i've noticed so many people confused with the controls that i've decided to explain some things here.
First of all, you get to build your base BEFORE pressing 'enter'. Turrets can only be placed AFTER pressing 'enter' and you have examples of how to place them on the top-right corner.
I hope this helps a bit.

PS: Hope you have Windows :c
PPS: Click the skull, it is very wise.

It was......weird, which is kind of a good thing. It wasn't a snowman platformer! It wasn't very easy to figure things out though, but that is kind of typical for most jam games.

Darn. The game was intriguing but I couldn't figure it out. I kind of got that I was making a big tower that you defend, but after two games I couldn't figure out how to place turrets. And then I gave up because I GOTTA DO THE DISHES!

I wasn't quite sure what all the things on the screen were or how to figure out a strategy. I think some more instructions would be good.

Nice mechanics, would have preferred a bit more tutorialization though. Overall really good!

Could not figure out how to build those turrets. Tried everything, rightclicking, leftclicking, q, w, e ... but I can just buy them, not place them.

I kinda got the idea after a while, but it was difficult to get. I did like the idea that you build upwards, and the zombies kind of tear it down.

Melancholic cat =) I liked the idea but did not immediately understand it

Dec 12, 2014 @ 4:32pm

A little confusing, but nice job!

I think the game is a bit slow.
You set up your base and then it is quite a lot of time watching some waves till you can build something again.

TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up. Alternatively, if you just posted it, wait a minute. The cache may not have refreshed yet.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
